Publisher's Summary

Rome 1959. Along the Via Veneto, the living and the dead enjoy la dolce vita, as the vampires, intellectuals, conspirators, jet-setters and swindlers of Europe gather in an endless round of indulgence and gaiety, dancing giddily to the music of the Dracula Cha Cha Cha. The Vampire King, in Italian exile, is to be married to a Moldavian princess, and rumours circulate that his wedding will be the first move in a campaign to return him to his position as Lord of the Undead and a power in the world. In the eternal city, three corpses in the Fontana di Trevi lead three vampire women towards the destinies of their hearts. A flamboyant murderer stalks the elder vampires of the city, perhaps intent on wrecking the Royal Marriage; an undead British secret agent with a license to kill is swept up in a titanic conflict with the supernatural agents of Smersh; a living American opportunist sees a way of surviving as a parasite upon the dead; and a creature older even than Count Dracula is awakened to decide the fates of lovers and monsters. From the author of Anno Dracula and The Bloody Red Baron comes this novel of horror and mystery, romance and intrigue.

pretty fun

a fun romp with the characters from anno Dracula... i know its not the last book in the series but if it did end here it would be a solid end. it was nice to revisit the people there and im curious to see where the next book may lead.

#3 is the best so far! You'll love it if

you're a film buff, a late 50s culture devotee, or a fan of Kim Newman's vampires.

Another successful tale of myth and fact

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I would recommend this book. It works as a standalone listen, but to appreciate all of its details and nuances the two previous titles in the series should be heard/read first

What other book might you compare Dracula Cha Cha Cha to, and why?

Most of The late Kim Newman's other works which skilfully blend fictional characters into historical factual settings.

Which scene did you most enjoy?

Dracula's wedding party and the subsequent plot development

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Not particularly as the storyline is not one that is designed to "move" you .. It's vampires in Europe in the 1950s!

Any additional comments?

A great addition to the series, with previous characters and celebrities of the era .. Great fun.

Mondo Monologues

Great set-up; plenty of fun pop culture references; intriguing alternative history plot; excellent production. In the debit column there's way too much exposition and too much of the dialogue is just monologue, with one character giving us large chunks of plot or back story in the guise of talking to another character. Still; it was enough fun that I may get one of the earlier books in the series.
